    Cindy was my sister and my fondest memories of Cindy was she loved reading and I remember always seeing her with a book. I remember going to relatives and swimming at the lake house together when we were kids. Growing up together Cindy was always willing to lend a hand whenever needed and was always there for me. Cindy was very gullible and we would have fun together kidding about things. I am glad that throughout the years she came to visit me and my family many times to trips to Oklahoma from Indiana and I got to visit her many times as well. She will be greatly missed. Love you Sister. Larry

      Cynthia was a great coworker at the phone company. I only worked with her for 5 years in South Bend. Her crocheting was amazing works of art. She will be deeply missed.

    Cindy was my Aunt and I miss her. My fondest memories are traveling with her in the Honda Civic to the national parks in Indiana, going to the zoo, the Children’s museum and the many trips that I spent time with her in Indiana. She got me a stuffed animal raccoon about 30 years ago and it is something that reminds me of the good times we spent together and I have had it displayed in my room every since. We both loved ketchup on our pizza and just about everything else and I remember staying up late watching Star Trek with her crocheting and drinking our favorite drink Mountain dew. She was incredibly generous and made many Christmas mornings special for my brothers and I. I always felt more like her favorite son than a nephew and I find comfort in the fact that she is in Heaven and has joined my Grandma and other relatives there in Glory and is in a much better and happier place than any of us can imagine now. Rest in Peace Aunt Cindy.
    Love, Chris.

    Cindy was my aunt and the things I remember the most is when I lived with her and aunt kim in Indiana. I lived there for about 3 months I was having a troubling time in oklahoma. Aunt Cindy and Kim took me in and let me live them. Cindy taught me how to crochet and I made my first blanket. I can also remember going to church with them on Wednesday and Sundays. I was baptized and I gave my life to Christ while I was living there. Cindy and Kim helped me and opened a new door for my life. Cindy has been in pain for a long time and now she feels no more pain. Cindy is with Jesus now and with my grandma. I will see you again someday. I love you and will miss you. Jason

    Being so far apart in age, and the youngest sibling, I always thought of Cindy as not just my sister, but as a second mother. Later, as we grew older, she also became my best friend. She supported me in my decisions when others wouldn’t. She understood me. There will never be enough words to express how much she loved and was loved. She will be sorely missed.

    Anyone who knew her understood her to be a kind, caring, and generous person. She taught herself at age thirteen to crochet and knit. Over the years she became a true fiber artist. She gave away hundreds of afghans and projects to friends, family, and strangers. It was her passion and joy. Her way to show how much she cared about others. Even after her stroke, she was able to create many afghans and give them away to friends, local nursing homes, and other charities. The world has lost a great treasure and bright soul.

    Cindy accepted Christ in her twenties. She began reading the bible and really digging deep in study when she was in her teenage years. I take comfort in knowing that because she claimed Christ she is at peace, with Jesus, and I will see her again. She had health issues and pain her entire life. She is now in heaven where there is no pain, only joy. I hope you all take comfort in these thoughts as I will.

    If you wish to honor her memory, please donate to your local animal shelter or rescue. She especially loved our dog, Charlie, so donating to a Shih-Tzu rescue would be especially nice.

    Cindy was my friend. We used to attend church together. I enjoyed talking and visiting with her. She was kind, generous, and always interested in others.
    Cindy crocheted many beautiful Afghans, she was very talented and loved to bless others with her talent.
    I loved her. I am glad that she had a relationship with Jesus, and is no longer in pain. She will be missed.
